This Mom Wants to be Able to Jump the Queue in Coffee Shops and People Are Not Happy About it

We get it, coffee is important. We also get that nobody wants to queue for it. When it’s 7:00am and your body is screaming for your morning java fix, there’s nothing worse than being stuck in a slow-moving line at Starbucks.

So, it’s no surprise that some people might be a bit testy, like this mom, who took to social media to vent her frustration and accidentally went viral for all the wrong reasons.

Posting a photo of her coffee cup to Twitter, she said: “Moms should get a fast pass to the front of the line at coffee shops.

“Honey, you’re 22 & slept 10 hours last night? Get to the back of the line.”

And it’s fair to say, the internet has feelings about this “suggestion.”


And it wasn’t long before people noticed the similarity between this woman’s tweet and the infamous “can I speak to the manager?” meme.

Others weren’t happy that she was stereotyping Gen Y as lazy

Just another thing to blame millennials for – queues in coffee shops.

Some made their own signs honoring those they felt deserved it more

While fellow mom claimed people were “triggered” and couldn’t take a joke, ironically, in a tweet in which she seem fairly triggered herself

At least she didn’t call anybody a snowflake. Although, she was right about the uncalled for mom-shaming some tweeters seemed to feel was necessary.

Maybe we should all just brew our own coffee home instead – it’s quicker and you don’t have to deal with other people.
